Coral Sands: Your Bubble Gum Pink Paradise of Palm Springs

December 2022 Update: After a delightful televised renovation, The Trixie Motel is OPEN! We hope to stay there in the near future, in the meantime book your stay now!

February 2020 Update: The Coral Sands is under new ownership, and currently undergoing a remodel. Now dubbed Trixie Motel, it is now owned by drag queen legend Trixie Mattel and I can’t wait to see what she does with the place!

Each time Patrick and I head to Palm Springs, we decide to find a different little vintage hotel to stay at, as Palm Springs if full of unique offerings. This year it was the Coral Sands (as recommended to me by my dear friend Kiley of Running with a Chance of Costumes).

I can’t express how much I love the courtyard of Coral Sands. With fun vintage patio furniture, a kidney shaped swimming pool and swaying palm trees, it is a gem. So it’s no surprise I spent a good amount of time just loafing in and around the pool. But I also did a bit of shopping, and plan to share my new found treasures with you soon!

I didn’t snap any interior shots, but I can assure you our room, the “Howdy Doody goes to Bali” room, was adorable, kitschy to the max, and had flamingos galore.

Before heading home, we went out to Salvation Mountain, and I’m eager to look at the pictures and hopefully share them with you all soon!
